Eco-friendly Vacations

Vacations are suppose to be fun for you and your whole family, but is your vacation fun causing a hole in the ozone layer? Many of us take for granted how much damage is done to the earth when we take long vacations.

Energy and gas emissions are the main culprits when it comes to damaging the ozone layer. However, simple things like throwing your plastic bottles on the side of the road has a direct impact on the planet. Just imagine thousands of tourist littering everyday all around the world. The amount of trash is overwhelming. Taking an eco-friendly vacation may take a lot of planning, but the amount of time it takes is well worth helping save the planet.

If you want to have an eco-friendly vacation, the first thing you have to do is find a location perfect for minimizing your use of carbon emissions and energy. If you live near a big city with major tourist attractions, save gas and energy and visit the places you haven't visited. Taking a vacation in your own city will save you money and the emissions of gas will be reduced since you are not traveling a far distance and you are not flying. Airplanes release much more gas emissions than cars do.

In some cities, you don't even need a car to take tours. In a metropolis city like New York, you can use the subway for most of your travels. If you can't find a subway in your vacation spot, consider booking a tour guide through the city, which is kind of like carpooling . You'll save money on gas, and gas emissions will be reduced.

If you plan on staying at a hotel, make sure you turn off all the lights and turn off the air conditioner when you leave. If you feel comfortable enough, you can save energy by requesting that your towels and linens to only be washed every other day. Check into a room that is for non-smokers, if more people request non-smoking rooms, hotels will make more non smoking rooms available.

Instead of returning home with souvenirs that you probably won't use, bring home something that will help the community you visited and the environment. Items such as locally produced honey, or crafts made from local children are great gifts that keep on giving.
